In 2022 and 2023, following the collapse of the key global players in the crypto industry, regulators around the world closely scrutinized crypto activities and tightened the regulations for digital asset businesses. This tightening primarily concerns the protection and segregation of customers’ assets, which has become standard practice since the crypto crash.
Over the past year, we have witnessed a series of enforcement actions and attempts by offshore regulators to classify various types of digital asset products and determine whether these products should be classified as securities.
Building upon the aforementioned trends in the digital asset industry, Thailand’s Office of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued new regulations and held public hearings. These initiatives aim to enhance investor protection and strike a balance between supervising and fostering the development of the crypto industry.
